We stayed here in March 2014 for 7 nights. We stayed in a static caravan - we decided to upgrade our accomadation, and we are glad we did. The caravan was roomy, plenty of space for a running toddler. The rooms were lovely.Everything we needed was provided (kitchen stuff, bedding etc). We had been in 2013 and had a cheap caravan that didn't have central heating, the caravan was extremely cold as only a gas fire in lounge, so bedrooms were that cold that we had our then baby in the same room as us - this time however, we had central heating and at the touch of the button the place was warm and cosy. We moved the single beds to one side and put our little ones travel cot up in one of the bedrooms and there was still plenty of space to move around.
The park itself is fabulous. We went to the disco every night, which our 18 month old loved. We played bingo every night and thoroughly enjoyed it. We used the swimming pool every day, that was lovely and staff in there are on top form to sort out any people messing around. (there was one couple, diving off the side and running and jumping in - doesn't phase me but with a little one and other babies/children in pool, was a little dangerous). The amusements kept us entertained while waiting for bingo.
We ate in the pub on our first night and it was a slight let down as we were kept waiting for food for an hour - it was a Monday night and very empty, so why the wait I have no idea.. It was nice food, nothing special but nothing to complain about. We hadn't eaten from the chip shop. We had used the shop a few times, this is good, some things are a little expensive, but was good as forgot a few things like washing up liquid but that only cost 99p, along with clingfilm for 99p.
The whole place over all is great. We first visited in 2013, and returned this year. My partner has been coming here since little and we then returned as our own family. Its perfect for family holiday as everything is on site. You are very near to beach. Its just great overall!
